Geshe Lobsang Tsultrim – 2014
Wedged on a spit of land that had been hurriedly carved out from the precarious hill above the main street of town, stood two stoic houses that clung to the rocks and sliding earth.
Long ago it held lights that led the way to stone steps from back alley way doors of saloons, where women waited in red and black, feathers and sparkle through the night, to be enumerated to laugh, and listen,to engage their talents and energies.
one large entry room held the creak of wooden floors opening to a long, shadowed hallway, where small cubicle rooms held the length of closed curtains, and muffled voices.
In time as all things do, the people and the occupation of that house disappeared from the budding frontier and an industrious Chinese family, The Chan’s, bought the land and its history, and changed the course of events that brought the first Joss house that sat across from highway fifty nestled in a hill.
It was recorded in the archival books at the local library in Placerville, that the parade that ensued following the building of the new Joss house was accompanied with banners, horns, flags and people bedecked in the finest of silk attire to mark the respect of the occasion.
Description so identifying with the exception of colors that only your imagination could fill in the details of its splendor.
Again the clock of years moved the circumstances forward to see a new liveliness that took interest in this historic place, a family with an artist that had graced the walls with his historic works in the San Francisco Museum of Art, Crocker Museum, Oakland museum and the outreach of others who had recognized his talents in credibly capturing moments of the past on canvas. Deino Trotta walked the Main Street of town looking at faces, people who stood out in his special sight and came back to the small studio, that same historic house of many people, many lives on Reservoir Street, to paint the impressions he wanted to safeguard for the future of this small town he had fallen in love with and wanted to preserve in his way. His guests filled the passages of time through the door way ; No one on Main Street below, save for a few and the diary held in trust at Utah Southern State would know Dr. John Laurence Seymour had began writing an opera for the Metropolitan one snowy evening within its walls, the mezzo-soprano Jean Craft had delighted to share an offering of voice and magic in treasured tone.
Eventually impermanence made its entrance and moved the circumstance, the house stood empty through winters and summers, save for homeless and transients who knew there was a night’s rest before moving on. One by one the boards gave way to the face of damage, numbers and the identity of what had been an address succumbed to rubble.
The people are gone, the house has disappeared and the land once again is a plain spit of land.
